I ran into this song four and a half years ago, in some piano+voice songbook that a friend bought in Hong Kong.
I have no clue as to what the song is named, what it's about, what the original instrumentation was, when it was written, where it was written, who wrote it, etc..
I do however remember (1) the exact appearance of the first two bars, (2) the first phrase and plus a bit of the second phrase of the refrain melody, and (3) the refrain's left-hand pattern.
I also remember that the song was in B-flat major, but ended verses in an incomplete cadence in G minor, so that the refrain could begin noticeably in G minor and end up back in B-flat major. I loved this feature.
Interestingly, I later wrote my own song-without-words based on the refrain of this song.

Edit: mentioned that the intro is piano solo, not sung.
